Residential Superintendent (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – September 13, 2013
The Northern VA team at Lennar was ran very well, had a great management team, and allowed their superintendent to work freely and forge relationships with the subcontractors. I had a great time there, and would work for them again if the opportunity presented itself
Keeping all Trade Partners Insurance & Contracts up to date. Worked with 11 different states. Daily working with the Construction Managers. Built a Contact Management system. Built manuals for every aspect my position. The hardest was getting the Trades to understand Insurance and the Construction Managers and getting the correct endorsements. The most enjoyable was knowing that the Irving Office that I worked in was the most proficient in all the processes of the Contract process.
Construction Manager (Former Employee) – Morrisville, NC – October 26, 2018
For a large builder these folks do not have their act together. Same problems as any other builder. Sales in their own world, purchasing behind on setting budgets, change orders frowned upon, inaccurate take offs, senior managers too busy or unwilling to share information or better business practices. Unfortunately the buyers pay the brunt of all the issues with items missed promised by sales, poor workmanship, homes finished late and incomplete. Heavy handed approach by management and sales. Through it all they are able to find time to pat themselves on the back at how great they are. You be the judge.
Could be so great.
Long hours, poor management, don't focus on the customer but $$'
General Office Clerk (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 25, 2018
Every day was a pleasure. I learned about home purchasing files and that there really are folks you can work with that are fun! Management was super, they were as much and sometimes more fun than my co-workers. The culture was always a willingness to assist and have fun while doing a super job. The hardest part of the job was lifting all those heavy folders. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting up and going to work there every day.
Executive Secretary, Legal Department (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – October 11, 2018
Every day was different and dealing with top executives on staff and on the Board of Directors was stressful, but very challenging. To complete all duties and execute them completely was a great accomplishment.
Working there was good, when issues accrued and looked to manager, you got no help they they blame you for not doing your job, Or when things finally escalate to corporate then they get on your case and get involved. Instead of being about quality it became more about production,
Flexable hours, great benefits
poor management, some managers do not deserve their position
Land Acquisition Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 1, 2018
My work day was split about 50/50 with new business and ongoing business. Half of my time was dedicated to identifying new properties suitable for residential development and home building. The other half was spent managing the acquisition process from contract negotiations to due diligence and market studies. Ultimately, each deal was summarized in an investment package to be sent to regional and national executives for approval. Upon approval, there were additional processes for closing. Working at Lennar allowed me to learn the land acquisition process which is similar for most national home builders. Our team was top notch including management. Work hours could be long and unpredictable, but vacation and standard time off was always respected.
Assistant Construction Manager (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – July 31, 2018
The company is the largest home builder in the USA but lacks to take care of those that work hard for them to continue being successful in their result driven company. Not very happy with having to ask for a pay raise and not even given any type of answer back. Upper management is to busy trying to make themselves look good and forget that the construction manager and assistant manager make everything happen.
Largest Home builder in USA
Pay is not well for assistants construction managers.
Purchasing Manager-Atlanta South Division (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – July 14, 2018
Lennar is a very well-run organization-just don't expect any warm and fuzzies while you are there. The culture is cold at best and there is an almost blind insistence on following regional directives at the cost of ignoring local circumstances. People are not encouraged to think outside the box.
Lennar is good at what it does - building quality homes
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – July 10, 2018
A never ending cycle of unresolved issues with no support from management and blame placement is always accompanied. A bad day is noticed more than a good day and management shows its true colors on a daily basis.
Meeting new people
Micro managing at its finest without ownership of their responsibilities.
Construction Nanager (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – June 30, 2018
I’ve worked for several builders and Lennar has been much better than Century Communities and True Homes. Working for Lennar isn’t too bad but try to keep from taking on too many houses. They will load you up and expect you to still be successful if you don’t speak up. Don’t think by taking on more and looking like you can do or handle more will get you anywhere. It will get you noticed but for the wrong reasons.
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – June 7, 2018
Loved working here. Had to leave for personal reasons. Would love to go back. Lennar gives back to their employees. The CEO is eccentric but values hard-working, dedicated employees. Loads of employee benefits, generous PTO, work-life balance. Skills training.
New Homes Consultant (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – May 20, 2018
Great place to start building a career in new home sales - the training program is excellent Management at all levels changed several times during my tenure. With each change, protocols and policies also changed, making it difficult to conduct business with efficiency and consistency. Communication between departments was virtually non-existent.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – May 20, 2018
Heavily based on cliquish behavior and gossip. Managers are just figureheads set up to do upper managements dirty work. Upper management are disconnected from reality and cover for the less competent in upper management. Coworkers are mind numbingly dumb while other senior staff manipulates them by spreading gossip. Don't even think about voicing concerns because HR will quickly show you the door. Steer clear of this place.
Construction Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – April 24, 2018
Weak leadership. No accountability. And you get thrown under the buss for your co-workers lack of planning and poor execution. Lots of freedom and good work life balance. However, lots of drama and no support
Regional Purchasing Assistant (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – April 13, 2018
The Division President of the IE division publicly humiliated me in a meeting because i was 10 minutes late due to a road closure, something i could not control. I am not normally late. When people are late to a meeting he makes them sing in front of everyone.
Middle management is run very poorly - lack of communication and no understanding of what your job actually requires. Unrealistic demands are put on us to perform, when management (other than my direct boss) doesn't know a thing about our job.
Work Culture isn't terrible, the people that work around me are good people to work with
Pay is well below industry average, no bonuses or incentives, only get a small cost of living raise each year, very little room to advance in the company unless your are willing, to move to a different division or state
